KEY GAME INFORMATION
PHOENIX:

LAST SEASON: 42-27-13, 97 points. Lost to Los Angeles Kings 4-1 in Western Conference Finals.

COACH: Dave Tippett, 4th season with Coyotes, 125-78-33; 9th overall, 406-234-98 in NHL.

ADDED: LW Steve Sullivan, D Zbynek Michalek, RW David Moss.

LOST: LW Ray Whitney, LW Taylor Pyatt, D Adrian Aucoin, C Daymond Langkow, D Michal Rozsival.

PLAYER TO WATCH: G Mike Smith. The shaggy-haired goalie known as Smitty proved to be a more-than-capable No. 1 goalie in his first full season on the job, winning 28 games with eight shutouts and a 2.21 goals-against average. With the confidence of last season's deep playoff run, he could be a Vezina Trophy candidate.

OUTLOOK: The Coyotes should be brimming with confidence after winning their first division title and reaching the conference finals for the first time in 33 years as an NHL franchise. With the core of last year's roster back, they should be position to get the lockout-shortened season off to a good start and be able to sustain it toward another possible deep run in the playoffs.

SAN JOSE SHARKS

LAST SEASON: 43-29-10, 96 points. Lost to St. Louis 4-1 in first round.

COACH: Todd McLellan, 5th season, 195-92-41.

ADDED: D Brad Stuart, F Adam Burish.

LOST: F Torrey Mitchell, F Daniel Winnik, F Dominic Moore, F Brad Winchester, F Andrew Murray, D Colin White, D Jim Vandermeer.

PLAYER TO WATCH: D Brent Burns. The big acquisition before last season, Burns struggled in his first season with the Sharks as he tried to figure out how to fit in. His points and assists were down from his final year in Minnesota and he was not nearly the aggressive, hard-hitting defenseman the Sharks had been expecting. The Sharks hope that an increased comfort level will lead to better results in year two for Burns.

OUTLOOK: The Sharks hope to be a faster, more aggressive team after the disappointing finish a year ago. They brought back most of the key players from that squad led by captain Joe Thornton but hope Hall of Famer Larry Robinson's impact on the struggling penalty kill unit as a new assistant will help return San Jose near the top of the conference.

*Coyotes-Sharks Preview* ========================

By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer

Phoenix (1-2-0) at San Jose (2-0-0), 10:30 p.m. EDT

The Phoenix Coyotes ended San Jose's lengthy reign as Pacific Division champions in 2011-12, but the Sharks have shown that they may be ready to reclaim that crown. Until their most recent game, the Coyotes didn't have the look of a team that was poised to repeat.

San Jose will seek to remain unbeaten in its home opener and might have caught a break if Mike Smith can't go for the Coyotes on Thursday night.

The Sharks (2-0-0) had won four consecutive division titles before finishing one point behind the surprising Coyotes last season. Phoenix also made its way to the conference finals while San Jose was defeated in the first round of the playoffs and failed once again to make a long-awaited run to the Stanley Cup finals.

The Sharks, though, have been ready for the start of this shortened season. After winning 4-1 in Calgary on Sunday, they jumped on Edmonton early in a 6-3 victory Tuesday.

San Jose scored a franchise-record six goals in the opening period with Patrick Marleau and Logan Couture netting two apiece. Joe Thornton assisted on three scores.

"It's only two games, but we've had a couple of nice wins and put some points in the bank which is important in a season like this," said Marleau, who has four goals and an assist.

Marleau had a team-best five points last season against the Coyotes (two goals, three assists) and has 10 in his last seven home matchups (five goals, five assists). The Sharks, however, lost four of their final five overall meetings with Phoenix in 2011-12 and were shut out three times by Smith over that span.

Smith posted career highs of eight shutouts, 38 wins and a 2.21 goals-against average during his first season with the Coyotes but suffered a lower-body injury in the first period of Wednesday's game against Columbus.

Jason LaBarbera stopped 21 of 22 shots in place of Smith, who had allowed 10 goals over the first two games, and veteran winger Steve Sullivan recorded his eighth career hat trick in a 5-1 victory. Oliver Ekman-Larsson had two goals and an assist for his first career three-point game and his first points of this season.

The win allowed the Coyotes (1-2-0) to avoid their first 0-3 start since moving to the desert. As the Winnipeg Jets, the franchise dropped its first three games in 1985-86.

"I was a little bit nervous going in, but we were focused," LaBarbera said. "We played an unreal game and that's how we have to play every night."

The Sharks are off to their best start since winning their first four games in 2008-09 and have won in seven of the last eight visits from Phoenix. They've also beaten LaBarbera in five straight matchups, but the most recent of those was on Dec. 23, 2010.

Smith, meanwhile, is 4-0-1 with a 1.18 GAA in his last five games against the Coyotes.

Sullivan hasn't scored a goal in any of his past five games against San Jose but he has five assists during a four-game point streak.

San Jose signed veteran center Scott Gomez to a one-year deal Wednesday but it's not clear if he'll make his debut for the Sharks in Thursday's game. Gomez has 686 career points, but had just two goals and nine assists in 38 games for Montreal last season.
